On the Market: A Westport Home with an Unparalleled View of Long Island Sound

This Westport home offers views over Long Island Sound and the Longshore Country Club and is listed with Michelle Genovesi of Michelle & Company, affiliated with William Raveis in Westport for $5,998,000.

The Connecticut coastline is long and varied: rocky in places, sandy in others and punctuated by both urban harbors and laid-back beach towns all along the way. The state also has great lakeside communities, miles of riverfront, and properties with private “ponds” that are measured in acres and stocked for fishing.

The wateriest of all of the waterfront homes features a pool and dining terrace sited directly on the Grays Creek inlet along Long Island Sound, and positioned between Longshore Country Club and Compo Beach for maximum opportunities for fun in the sun. The views across the Sound are especially breathtaking from the third-floor master suite, with its walls of glass doors opening onto a private deck. This circa-1970s contemporary, updated in 2004, also offers a chic new kitchen with limestone countertops and Sub-Zero appliances, a library and a home gym. Michelle Genovesi of Michelle & Company, affiliated with William Raveis has the $5,998,000 listing.
